The Airbus A.330-300 is the medium range version of the Airbus family of jet airliners. They began flying in 1992 and have become popular with airlines around the world for their comfort and operational profitability.
The A.330-300 is one of a family of airliners that uses common wings and fuselages but with different engines to economize on production and operation.
The first A.330 flew on 2 November 1992 and they began entering airline service a year later. They have proved very competitive with competing Boeing airliners in the same class.
This model represents OO-SFO in the colours it was flying in at the time of Sabena’s collapse in 2001.
